is no different from arguing the merits of the case. in particular, the specific arguments that inspector lee made this evening, with respect to bias, were not made in the written motion, so we did not put -- did not apply in our written motion. speaking to the issue about discrimination or retaliation, there is ample evidence in the record that corroborates the claims made as to each of the specifications. i do not want to belabor the point. in short, this relates to refusal to serve a search warrant as ordered. use of testimony in the transcript it took him six days to serve a warrant, and multiple repeated orders before he executed the warrant. you also have an accusation that he was dishonest when he told his acting lieutenant at the scene of executing the warrant that he had been instructed by another lieutenant to go home and have someone else write the report. we have the testimony from the acting lt. that evening that that was what frank lee had told him. and you have testimony from another lieutenant that he had said no such thing. you have also seen the interviews in which the inspector

of further discussion. >> i echo that concern. i trust mr. lee's opinion that one food truck is not going to degrade the pedestrian. >> good afternoon. >> good afternoon, commissioners. john, department of public works. this situation, the mobile food facilities program that the department is currently running is approximately a year and a half since it was voted on by the board of supervisors. we're continually learning as given it's a new program and we're typickually continually refining. currently the legislation itself is being reevaluated to clarify and change certain aspects to provide more clarity to the code. given that my assumption currently is that it would ask for the same type of closure from 11:00 to 2:00 to operate in the same proximate location. it is highly unlikely that the department would recommend an approval for these types of additional food trucks because again, we're starting to run into areas of what we believe to be some saturation, that the intent of the legislation was to, according to the board of supervisors was place these food trucks into so-called foo
